Abstract:

A descriptive study to determine the magnitude and extent of cigarette smoking among Air Force trainees is proposed. Using random sampling techniques, 2500 recruits will be surveyed by questionnaire before and after six weeks of basic training at Lakeland Air Force Base, Texas. Data will be analyzed in terms of gender-specific and overall smoking prevalence, as well as incidence of change at completion of the training period. Results will assist health personnel in planning interventions to decrease future Air Force morbidity and mortality associated with cigarette smoking.
